Ottendorf am Main, Germany (1932)

After completing his medical studies, he enters the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Between 1974 and 1994, he is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Offenbach.

One of the key elements in the work of Staudt is his concern for optical phenomena generated by light. Since the early 60s, his work has focused on transparency, light and audience interaction. In his work, the composition is subject to systematic and geometric thinking.

In his work we find varied ranges and nuances, different to the actual color of the support. The occurrence of chromatic saturation is directly related to the arrangement of the geometrical elements on different planes, positioned behind colored Plexiglas and the intensity of the light they receive. The composition, in turn, varies depending on the movement of the observer.

Nowadays, the artist continues to develop his work, as well as working on integration to architecture of his work, and the publishing of books on his plastic research.

His work can be seen at the collections of Daimler-Chrysler, Stuttgart; Musem Ritter, Waldenburg (Germany); Musée des Ursulines de Mâcon (France); Musée de Cambrai (France).
